Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide. The 41-year-old hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County this morning.
Law enforcement officials say his body was found shortly before 9am. The singer had a history of drug and alcohol abuse.
He had six children from his two marriages. He had been married to model Talinda Ann Bentley for 12 years.
Bennington’s suicide came on the day of his late friend Chris Cornell’s birthday. The Soundgarden rocker also killed himself in May by hanging. And just on his birthday Chester felt it was cool for him to go home too.
